몬구 ~ 여자들도 다 똑같애

Mongoo, “Girls are All the Same, Too”

 

I’m never one for generalizations, which is why my fondness for this song seems counterintuitive at first. I’ve never heard this in my personal circles, but apparently it is a common refrain among certain women that “all men are the same” (along with “all the good ones are taken”). The irony is that the phrase is ostensibly so common that it opens women for the exact same criticism because they all complain about the same things! And that’s how Mongoo (leader of rock band Mongoose) struck back in his first solo single.

 

 

한국어:

 

여자들이 하는 말

요즘 남자들 다 똑같애

모두 다 그런 건 아니라고 말해도

그래도 다 똑같대

 

그럼 난 너에게 뭔데

나의 의미는 뭔데

 

여자들이 하는 말

요즘 남자들 다 시시해

나와 커피를 마시면서

지난 연애를 모두 말하네

 

그걸 왜 내게 말하는데

난 듣고 싶지 않아

 

모르겠어 하지만 하난 알겠어

 

여자들도 다 똑같애

기다려 봐도

끝도 없이 기다리게 만들지

여자들도 다 똑같애

아리송한 말투

나를 바라보는 그 느낌

 

모르겠어 하지만 하난 알겠어

 

여자들도 다 똑같애

기다려 봐도

끝도 없이 기다리게 만들지

여자들도 다 똑같애

아리송한 말투

나를 바라보는 그 느낌

 

여자들이 하는 말

요즘 남자들 말이 안 통해

음악도 모르고 책도 안 읽어

그래서 할 말이 없데

그럼 나랑 얘기하자

더 가까이 얘기하자

 

(그럼 그녀 그저 웃어넘기지)

 

여자들도 다 똑같애

기다려 봐도

끝도 없이 기다리게 만들지

여자들도 다 똑같애

아리송한 말투

나를 바라보는 그 느낌

 

여자들도 다 똑같애

여자들도 다 똑같애

 

 

English:

 

There’s something women say:

that lately all men are exactly the same.

Even if they not ALL men are like that,

they’re still all the same

 

So then what am I to you?

What is my meaning?

 

There’s something women say:

that lately all men are boring.

As you drink coffee with me,

you talk about all your past lovers

 

Why are you telling me this?

I don’t want to hear it

 

I don’t get it, but I do know one thing:

 

All girls are also exactly the same

No matter how much we wait

they make us wait endlessly

All girls are also exactly the same

They say confusing things that

make me feel like I’m being sized up

 

I don’t get it, but I do know one thing:

 

All girls are also exactly the same

No matter how much we wait

they make us wait endlessly

All girls are also exactly the same

They say confusing things that

make me feel like I’m being sized up

 

There’s something women say:

that lately men don’t engage in conversation

They don’t know music and they don’t read books

and that’s why they have nothing to say

In that case, have a chat with me

Let’s talk a little closer

 

(Then I’ll simply laugh her off)

 

All girls are also exactly the same

No matter how much we wait

they make us wait endlessly

All girls are also exactly the same

They say confusing things that

make me feel like I’m being sized up
